Onion Bajji

Onion Bajji

Bajji is a tasty snack which can be prepared very easily. My mom uses the left over idli/dosa batter to make bajjis since it provides a better consistency over rice flour. The most popular varieties of bajji are onion bajji, potato bajji, raw plantain bajji, brinjal bajji, chilli bajji and cauliflower bajji.
